Nintendo Switch Games You Must Get Now September 30, 2020

Posted by Maniac in Editorials.

If you’re like me, you’ve got a Nintendo Switch or a Nintendo Switch Lite and badly want to play some great games on it. After the handheld spent the last year utterly dominating in sales, I’m sure many people are wondering what games they should buy for it now that they’ve had their fill of the recent Animal Crossing title. Well, look no further because I’ve compiled a definitive list for all of you! For the purposes of simplicity we are going to only focus on games that are currently available at retail. Away we go!

Super Mario Odyssey -My absolute favorite platformer of all time with one of the best songs ever produced for a video game.

Super Smash Bros Ultimate – this one is a no-brainer. Have you liked ANY Super Smash Bros game from the past fifteen years? The character you liked is in Ultimate.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – The ultimate party game. All of the carts, characters and tracks you remember are included, along with all of the DLC from the Wii U version. The best part is the game’s multiplayer component can be played either by controller sharing, local network, or online.

Splatoon 2 – Still my absolute console favorite multiplayer shooter of this generation. Splatoon’s gameplay is fast, frantic and fun. It also comes with an enormous single-player campaign (and a paid DLC single-player expansion that is so long I still haven’t completed it).

Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – An Open-World Legend of Zelda game that you can take anywhere, explore however you want and complete at your own pace. Sign me up!

Octopath Traveler – An RPG made by one of the best RPG studios in the entire world with a unique art style I still haven’t seen replicated anywhere else. Seriously, did you see this trailer at the Nintendo Switch announcement event?

Catherine: Full Body – The definitive version of the classic platformer, Catherine: Full Body is a director’s cut of the 2011 game with new scenes, harder puzzles, and all-new characters. Why do I recommend getting the Switch version? All the DLC is included for free.

Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu or Let’s Go Eevee – You can’t buy a Nintendo handheld and not include a Pokémon game with it. A lot of you are going to be conflicted if I include Sword or Shield on this list so instead I’m going to go with the Kanto remakes. Let’s be honest, Pokémon Yellow was the first Pokémon game I ever played and seeing this game remade for the Switch tablet was just incredible.

All of the games listed here are available right now for the Nintendo Switch.
